Second of two nights in Los Angeles JEMS recorded (we also did San
Diego a couple days later; still looking for the part two master) and
not without problems, though this tape isn't as bad as I once thought.

First, my seats were halfway back on the side in the next to last
row, though the Sports Arena is so small by today's arena standards,
that would only be half way up at Staples. Second, the introduction of
a 110 min. metal tape seemed like a godsend for tapers, but it turned
out that at least on our D6 (and I've heard others had this problem
too), if the deck wasn't held in the right position, it struggled to
pull that much tape through across the heads properly. Hence the
problems with this tape, where the first two songs on side one of the
master and the first song on side two flutter in and out. By "Even
Better" on side one and the middle of "Bullet" on side two, the
problem corrects itself, and from there on out this is a good if
somewhat distant recording. I've included samples below of both the
fluttery portion and normal part.

Because of the flutter issues, I don't think I ever traded this tape,
as I always believed it effected more of the recording, not just 2.5
songs. Annoying just the same, but the rest may be worthwhile. You decide.
